Meri is moving forward with 'gusto'! She took on the challenge of two people facing forward. This project had several challenges including the wide range of values, tight and softened edges, further growth in understanding what your tools can do for you, understanding when to make an artistic change that will enhance the piece (which does not mean to change the appearance of the people), and more! This was one of those projects where there were highs and lows, moving into areas of the unknown for Meri. Meri has benefited by completing this piece and is a better artist for it!
